antique exceptional french pine armoire wardrobe for lounge or bedroom louis philippe 1870




Item Ref



A very substantial and outstanding, somewhat taller than standard early pine wardrobe, originating from rural France.
Dating from the equivalent of mid Victorian era, 1850 to 1870, this wardrobe was made for a well-to-do household if not a mini chateau!
- double arched panelled doors and double panel sides
- deep intricate and elaborate carved cornice
- fantastic dove tailed and complicated construction
- deep mellow colour
- original well designed plinth and round bun feet.,
- hand forged internal iron hinges and a most fantastic internal door latch
- carved wooden escutcheons
- lock and replacement key in working order
- two good sturdy shelves in bottom half of the wardrobe
- new brass rail
- original 2 part back board and clamp fittings.

Certainly one of the most splendid armoires we've had in recent years.
The construction and execution is of a good rural standard, it slots together very easily, despite it's size.
The decorative detail is intricate, pleasing and not overly ornate.
The depth of the piece is very good for hanging, 52cm and the 2 shelves provide with extra storage for jumpers, bedding, shoes etc.
Additional shelves could be added to make this armoire into a very substantial storage cupboard for landing or lounge.
The style is perfectly French country, yet timeless, the condition is very good overall, with the mellow look of a period piece.
The armoire dismantles for transport and access and is ready to use.
A fine usable armoire in style and condition, good for hall, landing, bedroom or lounge...
A one-of-a-kind...
